One of my favorite singer/songwriters is Slaid Cleaves. Considering it is a rare Saturday night when I had nothing to do, I spent part of the evening surfing the net, mainly to see what concerts are going to be where I am. After reading through Slaid’s concert schedule (hey Slaid…hook a brutha up! Come to Florida or St. Louis, man!) there was a caption which I totally, totally love. It read:
Slaid Cleaves. Grew up in Maine. Lives in Texas. Writes songs. Makes records. Travels around. Tries to be good.
Wow. Brevity at it’s best!
